Transcript for Boeing releases disturbing internal communications between employees
Now to those explosive newly released messages from Boeing about the now grounded 737 max jets. In internal documents employees mokd the FAA and even appeared to conceal evidence from regulators before those two crashes that killed 254 people. Reporter: A trove of documents released overnight paint an embarrassing picture for Boeing and its handling of the 737 max. Hundreds of emails and instant messages show employees mocking the FAA, the company, and problems with the airplane. In one exchange, a Boeing employee asks, would you put your family on a max simulator-trained aircraft? I wouldn't. Another apparently joking says, I still haven't been forgiven by god for the covering up I did last year. Several others blast the aircraft's designers. One writing, this airplane is designed by clowns who in turn are supervised by monkeys. The question is whether or not it reflects the attitude of a wider group of people at Boeing. That would be very difficult for the company to overcome without doing a lot of housekeeping. Reporter: Still others are slamming federal regulators, claiming the FAA were neither thorough nor demanding and failed to write up many issues. After all, Boeing has nothing to gain and everything to lose by being slap dash in safety. However, if the attitude is we're going to mislead the FAA, that's something that has to be addressed. Reporter: The fastest selling jetliner ever for Boeing, it was grounded following two deadly crashes, killing nearly 350 people. Boeing released a statement saying in part, these communications do not reflect the company we are and need to be, and they are completely unacceptable. The FAA called the tone and content disappointing but said there's nothing in these documents that points to any new safety risks. In other words, something they didn't already know about. These emails just blow you Absolutely. So much trouble for Boeing.
